In what could prove to be a cagey encounter at The Showgrounds on Saturday night, Europa League contenders Bohemians will travel to Sligo this weekend.

Starting with the hosts, coming off the back of another very worrying display in their 3-0 loss away at Derry last weekend, Sligo Rovers find themselves in the midst of a real struggle and their form in the final third will be a growing headache for Head Coach Liam Buckley. Once again struggling to make much of an impact away in Londonderry last time out, the Rovers have now failed to find the net in their last three consecutive appearances and almost appear destined for another bottom-half finish in Ireland’s top-tier this season. It is also worth noting that four of Sligo’s last five matches at The Showgrounds have produced under 2.5 goals at full-time.

As for the visitors, after picking up a much-needed 3-0 win at home to St. Patrick’s Athletic last weekend, fans in Dublin are desperate for their side to build off of that result. Enduring a four-match winless run prior to Saturday’s matchup and now sat 12 points adrift of league leaders Dundalk, their inconsistency in the final third will be a concern for Head Coach Keith Long. Aside from their victory over St. Patrick’s last time out, Bohemians have failed to find the net in their other three contests. With 12 of the last 15 Premier Division matches between the two sides producing under 2.5 goals at full-time, we’re backing another cagey encounter between two sides who have begun to struggle in the final third.
